Wintery Treat to Warm your Tummy...

Gluten, dairy and cane sugar free, 
Apple Spice Slice
Yum, yum, yum! Inspired by my gorgeous Dutch friends apple cinnamon cake http://www.chococolette.com that looked so good in the beautiful photos on her blog I could almost smell it...I really wanted a slice!  So with the wintery weather keeping me indoors, it was perfect timing to get to work on tweaking a recipe to suit my food restriction requirements, I came up with this delicious slice.  

The yummy smell of cake baking...waiting by the hot oven for the timer buzzer to buzz...and the satisfaction of breaking the rules and cutting into the cake...before its cooled...and eating a slightly sloppy piece of warm cake with a hot cup of tea....do rainy days get any better???

- To make the cake base, add to a mixing bowl,

3 medium apples, purée in blender raw, my small $15 blender does the trick, one apple at a time.

1 cup gluten free flour

1 TSP cinnamon

1/2 TSP ginger

1/2 TSP nutmeg

1/4 TSP ground cloves

1/2 TSP sea salt

2 eggs

4 TBS maple syrup

4 TBS coconut cream

3 TBS coconut oil, melted

1 TSP vanilla extract

 2 TSP gluten free baking powder

- Mix until all combined and pour into a slice tin and then start with the crumble topping

- For the crumble, mix together

1/3 cup ground almonds or cashews

1/3 cup shredded coconut

1 TBS coconut sugar

1 TSP cinnamon

3 TBS coconut oil, melted

- spread evenly over slice base

- bake in a preheated oven 160 C for approximately 30 mins or until cooked through to centre

Enjoy 😊
